A UNIVERSITY student, believed to have committed suicide, was found dead in her room by her parents in Sibu today.

Sibu OCPD ACP Stanley Jonathan Ringgit said the 24-year-old woman was a student at Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) in Penang.

Her body was found by her parents at about 6am today sitting next to a cabinet in her room.

The family is staying in a single-storey house in Lorong Bukit Lima Timur.

Paramedics who arrived at the scene pronounced her dead and there were bruises to her neck.

“The woman left behind a farewell note to her family,” ACP Stanley said as reported by The Star.
